I've always been one of those people who has the hardest time making small decisions. (Granted, I am a Gemini.) I can make big or important decisions in a second but have to look at the menu for 17 minutes just to end up ordering the same food I've had 25 times before.

This is why when it comes to nail polish colors, I'm more inclined to stick to what I know and love: a french manicure or either Essie's Wicked or Bubble Bath polish colors. I know — boring, right? But recently, I wanted to do something different and try the "Skittles" manicure trend, which involves painting a different color on each nail. So I went ahead and booked an appointment at Paintbox in New York City. Check out the full process and my takeaways ahead.
